Description

AACE International is dedicated to advancing the study of cost engineering and cost management through the integrative process of total cost management as outlined in the AACE International TCM Framework. To promote this objective, AACE awards academic scholarships to full-time students pursuing a degree in engineering, construction management, business management, or similar directed to working in the construction or engineering profession. The cost engineering profession uses the process of total cost management to identify and define those areas of business in which the discipline of cost engineering and cost management principles may be applied to plan and control resources, assets, costs, profitability, and risk. The major elements of the cost engineering discipline include estimating, project/product controls, planning and scheduling, business sciences, and project/product management.
